Many thanks to Patricia Ann Schaack Garcia for inviting me to participate in the Book Quote Challenge.
It is a great honor for me to follow in her foot steps. And that won’t be an easy task. But I’ll do my best.
I have to present three quotes per day by an author of my choice for three consecutive days. My quotes for today have been picked from Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice”.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”
“I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine.”
I’m sure, I don’t need to explain why they impressed me so much or who said what… These quotes are legendary – and they’re kind of burned into my memory.
Thank you Jane Austen for this wonderful story!
